Maryland


Did you know that Apple now sells more music online than Walmart sells over the counter?


So, we're returning from our trip from the east coast and I thought I'd share with you a couple of fun tidbits and things I've learned during our trip.


1. Colleen can't say Mythbusters.


2. As Grandmom is telling us "I would hate to have Alzheimer's Disease, it must be horrible." She takes a fork full of food and hits herself in the chin.


3. I passed my HUD inspection class. I'm one of five people who passed the class, and one of nine people the class started with.


4. People on the Metro are unsocial, and quite unresponsive when you try to start the wave throughout the metro car.


5. Uncle Daniel is a talented triangle player.


6. Stomp The Yard is an awesome movie!


7. Jennifer will physically attack you if you play the 'Mosquito Ringtone' anywhere near her.


8. Wes loves housework.


9. I thought I did at first, but I realized that I'm not quite sure why the grilled onions provided at the hot dog stands have a weird wet tomato sauce.


10. I have a double in Hollywood. Most of the East Coast Winters family (Richard, Mary, Sean and Kevin) are convinced that I am Jerry Trainor (Spencer, the older brother from the Disney Channel show ICarly.)


11. Don't you dare, ever, ever, ever FUCK WITH GRANDMOM'S MANHATTAN!!!!!


12. Grandmom sent us out the door telling us a joke about oral sex. I was able to get some of the good stuff on video here…. Just click this link! Grandmom's Great Joke!

Holy Moses

The late Charlton Heston, winner of the Best Actor Academy Award for his work in the movie "Ben Hur", passed away this Sunday. He famously played Moses in the movie "The Ten Commandments". What other role did he have in the movie "The Ten Commandments"?

Colleen, Noah and I arrived here in Maryland on Friday to visit Grandmom and attend a Housing and Urban Development class. I started talking to Grandmom on Saturday night about Leo.

Grandmom told me that she had heard about a young Marine coming back from duty, who was going to be attending her church, and she had told the priest that she was looking forward to meeting the young man. That young man was Leo…..

Also, Leo was walking to the church with his parents and saw Grandmom running across the street, he pointed her out to his parents and told them that this was the girl he was going to marry.

Most of you probably already knew this story, but it was the first time I had heard it, and I thought it was cute….. So you will all have to hear it again….. Sounds like a scene in a movie doesn’t it?

So….. I wouldn’t had known the answer to this trivia question either, so don’t feel bad. Charlton Heston also played the Voice of God in the movie "The Ten Commandments". On a side note, Charlton Heston’s son, Fraser Clarke Heston, played Moses as an infant in the movie.

World's Greatest Music Collection

The World’s Greatest Music Collection, also known as Ebay Auction 320230084120, was selling for $3,000,000!!!! No bids were received, but this collection is huge!!!!

Here’s their description of the collection:

"
Organized and cataloged, the collection is meticulously maintained and housed in a climate-controlled warehouse. Every recording in this amazing collection has been personally acquired by the collection’s owner over the past fifty years and represents a lifetime of work and his desire to see the music preserved for future generations. Deteriorating health and related financial concerns are forcing the owner to sell the collection at far less than its true value. The estimated value of the collection, on a per-item basis, is in excess of $50 million."

Some of what the winning bidder receives:

The entire record collection of more than a million- and-a-half 45 RPM Records, a million plus albums, more than 300,000 compact discs, thousands of 78s, cassettes and 8-Track tapes.

A few other interesting items singled out in the collection are the first CD ever made (of 300), the first flat phonograph record (from 1888), antique recording and listening devices, 10,000 phonograph needles and hundreds of cartridges, and ownership of the owner’s publishing company and seven independent record labels.

Here is the amazing statistic that really got my attention. More than six million song titles are in the collection. That represents 99% of all of history’s charted music and 50-60% of the uncharted songs. It is the greatest collection of recorded music in the world.

No word if this CD is provided in the collection....
